    How much tonal difference do you find between the Super 5 and the AG5?

    in my opinion they are very different tonally. i am not good at putting these things into words. both have great tone and are very versatile but they are completely different. i would describe the ag as having a sweeter, brighter tone. i would describe the super as having a more robust, beefy tone.

    According to this review, MTD Kingston Super 5 review, it has a Bart preamp. Have you looked inside? Do you know what type of preamp it actually has? Could you post an image of the preamp?

    No where in the description it mentions Bartolini. It says MTD preamp. I'm speaking of the original Kingston website. The website you have up above seems to be full of speculation. They just assume it's Bartolini.

    I can see where it would confuse anyone. But I have a lot of Bartolini products and that pre ain't one peace.
